How's that for a headline? Don't worry - our finances are fine! But, we just received a letter from the IRS officially approving our application for tax-exempt status. That means that any donations to Lee Montessori PCS are tax deductible to the extent that the law allows ("section 170 of the code" for those tax nerds out there). While this may not seem like a big deal, it means that we now have access to a host of services that are only for approved nonprofits, and potential donors (this means YOU!) can now be sure that donations to us will be tax deductible, just like they would to any of the other nonprofits out there.
As some of you may know, the average wait time for getting applications reviewed by the IRS is OVER A YEAR! The only way that we were able to get our application expedited was through the hard work and dedication of Lee Montessori PCS Board Member Abbey Hairston and our colleagues at Rosenberg Martin Greenberg - thanks to all of you!
